Sunday Service at 10:30 A.M.
December 4 - Steve Fesmire “Growing Beyond Moral Fundamentalism: Pragmatic Pluralism in Ethics and Politics”: It's popular to approach morality as a one-way street. Those going the right way (us) feel constantly endangered by a majority (them) coming the wrong way. Yet complex problems of contemporary pluralistic democratic societies demand that we gain a practical footing informed by conflicting claims that tug us in incompatible directions. Pragmatic pluralism suggests a way to conscientiously gain such traction.
Dec. 11 - Christmas and the Unitarians: Several of the songs, stories, images and traditions we associate most closely with Christmas have direct roots to Unitarians, and today we’ll explore them. You may be surprised at what our faith has contributed!
December 18 - UU Folksinger and storyteller Ben Tousley will offer a holiday service of songs and stories for all ages.
